I'll make this quick. Hallie has a few words now! She started talking in MI thanks to a cat named Bubble. She loved that little guy, and refers to him as "Bup." That's pretty much what broke her language barrier. (She had been saying "what's that?" and "daddy" for months, but would not move past those words)
Now she says, pretty much clear as a bell: (and I might forget a few)
breakfast (ok not clear as a bell, but she tries real hard. she loves breakfast.)
So we're excited about this!
